Gorgeous place with stunning gardens with hidden areas, impressive wrought iron work in that special blue. A really charming place. Recommended, great cafe too.

Had a great visit to stunning gardens today. Clough Williams Ellis family home and gardens includes architectural wonders, salvaged statues and stunning topiary. The cafe was superb, great service and sublime flapjack - here’s a shout out to whoever cooked that! Thanks
